Walcott believes he has been unfairly charactered by some as being greedy when he is stalling on an Arsenal contract which he says is to do with his playing position.
“That speculation on the money side of it has never been me. That’s not me,” Walcott insisted.
“I’m not the sort of person who’s influenced by money. I always make my decisions based on football and only football. Hopefully something can be sorted out. I’ll just wait for the club to get back to us now and go from there.
“It’s a slow process. My last contract took over six months to happen. Hopefully it can be sorted out. I’ve never said I wanted to go. I’ve always wanted to stay.”
